    Pros

    Great company for a young person to start oout a career with and grow with. Not a place for a mid-career person to move to.

    Cons

    Do not pay well for the amount of work a specialist does if you are an over achiever like I am.

    Advice to Management

    Put together an incentive package for the Specialist. Some type of bonus structure for excelling at your job.

    Pros

    Pay is good., friendly co-workers, well-known company

    Cons

    Stuffy old PYA mentality, managers in certain areas need management training, your days off are never really days off-constantly plugged in,

    Advice to Management

    Please make sure that your management is aware that the people they have working under them are human beings. To be talked to in a belittling manner is not acceptable on any level.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were excellent.

    Cons

    Certain people and their attitudes.

    Advice to Management

    To understand that every employee is an individual yet part of the team, and stop using your position to label employees as you see fit and also allow employees to tell what their concerns are instead of creating problems for them to deal with on a personal level that are not job revelant.

    Pros

    They pay is weekly, your automatically entitled to benefits following thirty days of service

    Cons

    The first con is lack of training in the stock yards division, I was told I would load trailers, I ended up scanning boxes out of inventory that were on the floor three hours before my start time taking them to the dumpster, I ended up taking out all the trash. Did not feel I perform the true warehouse associate. The start time for this warehouse position was that of an administrative position. All associates left without offering to help take out trash or boxes. Management left early and I had no contact number if something was wrong with the product being shipped out.
    Evaluation process is very bland in the stockyards division.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders in the Stock Yards need to learn how to talk to people, and actually establish a process in how he or she expects the area to be operated. Actually go through process of security before accusing individuals of doing something. Actually provide initial responsibility on job board, as stated I did not feel as though I performed any sort of warehouse function.

    Pros

    Pay, Stability, Benefits, and Location.

    Cons

    The place is filled with neptism on all levels. Some of the moves I saw during my tenure were shocking. I saw blatant preferential treatment of "drinking buddies" and lot of looks the other way to save operating costs. Input from employees that don't fit the image are ignored. I saw individuals that failed multple drug tests become managers. I saw others escorted out the door for the same infraction. The atomosphere is very thick with impending doom to produce numbers. Its big biz in it's rawest form.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the negative management tactics and allow the workforce to guide the way. If you want to improve efficiency you need experience and good moral. Not the whip.
